If you are in the Barcelona area and have a day to spare it is well worth your time and money to make a trip to see the Montserrat Monastery. The views from the monastery alone are worth the visit.

An amazing historical Basilica on the mountain. The view is breathtaking. Easy to arrive with a car (there is a parking area nearby).

We took a half day trip. It was not enough time . It appears that for the devout catholic this is a pilgrimage site. In addition to the monastery there is also a boys school. Often you can enjoy the boys choir, they were not...More
